I tried to process this the way Laurent (TOY) does. I think I got it more or less right. My cat wasn't very cooperative. I took 6 shots and he hid under my bed. this one is the only one where he's actually facing the camera.

Also, i put noooo effort into the way I look. I just sat in front of the camera and took shots. For those who remember, a few months ago I had NO hair. Pedro had shaved it (check out my Nightmare
entry. I haven't cut since that event. Horrible eh?

Oh, and the shot isn't as sharp as I would have liked it, but I didn't have a remote for my D200 and had to focus on something that was more or less in the area i was going to sit. I obviously didn't get it right


Good luck to all

Chris

I wish the lighting was a little bit brighter overall but your pose and the cat's stance is great. Nice expression on your face. BB

I wish I could see your eyes more. It's a little dark in that area. I like how you made the photo personal with your cat sitting on your shoulder.

Needs more lighting on your eyes and less on the side of your face.
